Summary, from paper: "The results of the current study indicate that a resistance exercise protocol that combines isometric, concentric and eccentric modes of contraction with an accumulated volume of training greater than that reported in our previous study, results in a suppression of catabolic signaling (myostatin) and the maintenance of anabolic processes such that the muscle atrophy response to unloading can be effectively blunted."

From conclusion in paper: "This diminished vasoconstrictor response of white adipose tissue coupled with the increased percentage of body fat with old age (reference provided) provides a clinically relevant mechanism that may contribute to the orthostatic hypotension that is prevalent among the elderly."
